No Wes in the 4th quarter again because DFS and Brunson played good....so Rick is learning. Now just forbid Powell the fucking 3s

Boy, i pray so much that Harry Ass Barnes is opting out because he knows next season his role is going to shrink dramatically...trying to lure a desperate team in a 4/80 sucker deal

Agree, positive stuff for Mavs moving forward. I also want to see Rick discouraging Wes from initiating offense. That whole 2 minute debacle before the end of the first half really hurt us. :-(

I really think Barnes held up to try and find Luka. Once he saw he was covered with the amount of time left he tried to create a good look. Just lost the ball. It happens. Good to see the team fight with the best team in the league.

Luka needs more than 32 mins when you are playing a Warriors team playing KD 38mins and Steph 37mins.

I thought the game turned when we put that lineup with Powell at the 5 and Barnes at the 4. We got drilled on the glass after having a nice lead on the glass early.

I would have been fine with the loss overall until that boneheaded play by Barnes. That changed the loss from a good competitive game where Curry was on fire to a headache. As a basketball fan I feel robbed of a climactic finish.

Barnes didn't hold up. He may have looked Luka's way for a second, but he immediately went into iso mode and got down for a crossover move and lost the ball oob. STOOPID. It's a shame too because I thought he had a really nice game. The plus with Barnes is that he is willing to adjust. His real negative as far as future with the mavs imo is his asking price.

Yeah it was so close....the two Luka misses...before when we dropped Klay on a step back but passed the ball...

Annoying feeling...but again: the entire leagues knows that Luka is a future superstar. That should help in the free agency in the next years

t's a bummer to lose, but that was a hell of a game, and I really like quite a number of the adjustments that Rick made. Here's to hoping that he carries some of these new rotations into the future. This could be a nice boost for the team with how the Mavs played. Now we need a healthy DSJ back and a smart way to ease him back into the flow without disrupting some of these successful on court combos.

Barnes stopped at the 3 point line with about 9 sec, backs it out, but Luka wasn’t even at half court yet. HB looks at him, but there wasn’t time for Luka to get open, get the ball, and get a decent look.

There was plenty of time for Barnes to dribble towards Luka and hand off the ball had he been so inclined. He clearly wasn't and got down for a crossover step back move and muffed it. It looked like something Pomeranian Powell would do out of overexcitement.

We could also mention how our coach burns through more timeouts than any other coach. The obvious ones to stop runs and disrupt a flow are one thing. Would have been nice to have a timeout there to draw up a play for Luka. I'd have to go back to see how many timeouts were necessary and how many were not.

Why do you play Doncic 32 minutes? Is Carlisle trying to save him or rest him up for the play offs since he's in his mid 30s? James Harden played 43 minutes tonight and shot up 32 shots.

Durant & Curry had about 37 to 38 minutes and put up 21 to 32 shots. Meanwhile, Doncic logs 32 minutes and puts up 18 shots. That's not gonna do it. You have to get your Super Star to put up at least 21 to 25 shots a night.

I don't like Carlisle, I think he's an outdated coach with these out dated methods, and I think we need new blood and an aggressive GM. Donnie was aggressive, but I guess age has something to do with why he's sitting back now.

Tough finish. It's pointless to blame Barnes for this loss. He panicked a bit but Luka wasn't in the play and it's not like luka was a hot hand by any means. Luka missed his last several shots, was and has been dreadful at the free throw line. Curry goes nuts with 48, Durant had a very solid 28. There were some bad missed calls too imo.

Bullets:
  • No morale victories in the NBA, but if you feel bad about this one, then more because we've lost against the Suns and Knicks of the world. Hanging tough with the champs until the end is a +.
  • Not as mad about the last TO by Barnes as others. Team was 0-for in the last minutes, Luka 0-3. You still want to give the ball to the second best clutch player this season, but overall I think Minnesota spoiled us a bit. Let's not forget this team is not able to constantly deliver in close game situations. We're a below average team in that regard. Luka's two step-backs late were sooooo close still. Bummer.
  • First one to get to Barnes and cheer him up was Luka. Leader.
  • Luka now has 25+ PPG in his last four. With him it's not even improvement over seasons, he figures out stuff and literally gets better every month. Tougher game for him with 5 TOs, but 26/6/5 otherwise. Gotta hit that FTs tho... I guess that's something we'll have to live with for now.
  • Something pointed out by T-Mac on Twitter: Luka's efficiency takes a hit because he throws up those heaves all the time. It's certainly no biggie, but 1-3 missed threes per game can be accounted to them. I would love the NBA to treat them as and-1s and only count if they go in.
  • Great first game by Brunson in that JJB role. He can't take over games like Barea, but might even be the more consistent players of the two.
  • Harris taking over for a stretch late was just gold. Would have liked for him to stay with the starters for a little longer.
  • Could have used DSJ vs. Curry in this one. I thought we would have trouble guarding him with our starting lineup, but we didn't even give up too many open looks. Dude's just a beast.
  • Maxi needs to be playing 20-30 minutes even with DSJ back.

Can't really complain about that game. It was a great game and it had everything you want as a fan. Loosing sucks, but loosing like this is fine for me.

Also can't blame Barnes. Please don't forget in situations like this what barnes gave us the last 20 games... he is a very good player and he shoots the 3 better than Matthews as well. Barnes is the wrong guy to blame for a loss, he can't be perfect.

Brunson is becoming more and more my favorite player. Great guy and really fearless. Also his 3 point shot is falling well now. He could be the winner of the season next to Luka if he continues to play well and uses the sad JJB minutes.

Maxi did a good job. Not a super game from him, but I am so happy that Rick let's him play and gives him the starting role. I hope he continues like that, because we had the Warriors nearly at a defeat.. nothing to change imo.

Harris wow.. great game from him. Hope he can continue like that during the season.

Will be interesting when DSJ comes back how Rick wants to play.

Great point on getting DSJ to guard Curry. His defense has improved quite a bit this year and I can tell he really enjoys taking on the defensive challenge. I don't know if it would have made any difference since Curry was being typical Curry, but it would have been really fun to watch.

Luka's role has expanded the last few games but like everyone is saying, but like the Geico commercials, he needs more, more, more.

Maxi is just playing great and soooo much fun to watch.

Brunson is going to be really good in limited minutes. I don't think he is long term starter potential because teams will plan for him just like they used to for JJB. His best role is JJB part 2 in keeping the offense running smooth coming off the bench.

Tough loss, but like Followill said, if they continue playing like this, they will win a lot of games.

Just a few thoughts. First, a playoff atmosphere. The Warriors played their best game, and held nothing back. When Curry hit that 3, his and his team's reaction was of someone who just won game 7 in the finals. I was mad at Barnes. It happens, but really shouldn't. He literally just dribbled the ball out of bounds. The pressure was too big. Next time, who knows?
Luka missed a couple of 3s. But they were close. Powell shouldn't shoot 3s in a close game.
The rotation the last 3-4 minutes was a head scratcher for me. With about 40+ seconds left, he put Kleber in the game. He immediately made a defensive impact, and that gave us a chance to tie the game. I would have had him instead of Finney-Smith out there the last 3-4 minutes for defense. Luka was kept on the bench too long. He should have grabbed a couple of minutes rest, then been in there the last 10.
Sure wish Devin could play like that the next 5 years...
But, not sure any of this would have mattered. The superteam had to dig really deep for this one. A very fun game to watch!
I just hope they aren't sluggish in the next game. No hangover effect.

Yikes. Just chiming in to say I can't wait until DSJ is back fully healthy for a run with Luka to silence the growing animosity here. Incredible to witness such a quick fan-leash for a 2nd year player who absolutely would have impacted the game last night, and any other one he has not had the opportunity to play in due to these nagging injuries.

We are not in a rush, and Luka is not ready to average 36 minutes just yet.

Blame DJ not Barnes...

It's easy to say Harrison Barnes blew the chance for a tie but KD is a crafty player. Watch the replay closely and you'll see KD slightly hit barnes right arm as he was dribbling to his right hand. Right hand couldn't catch the dribble. Turnover.

Now DJ on the other hand. You're up by 3 with minutes left. You grab the rebound 2ft from the rim, nobody in front of you, and you go up with that weak layup... Man that drove me crazy!

Now DJ on the other hand. You're up by 3 with minutes left. You grab the rebound 2ft from the rim, nobody in front of you, and you go up with that weak layup... Man that drove me crazy!

Can we also blame the overexcited Pomeranian, who blew an open dunk because he went for a layup and bricked it?

Not overly aggressive as we still had the 5th pick, but I'll give him that. And obviously I think Luka still goes #5 anyways. That said, what spectacular have we done in the last 5 years? I don't see anything, maybe you do and you can share it with me.

DJ has no offensive skills and it has always brother me because I think someone that can finishe a few feet from the basket and have a nice jump shot and post moves would be a better fit with Luka.
